first snow

My first morining in Kangirsuk, I awoke to a white world. Above is a shot from my hotel room window. Apparently I was privileged to witness the first snowfall of the season. Beautiful, but melted by the end of the day and no more snow for the rest of my visit.

peter pan...I would miss snow too, if I was deprived of it. But I'm sure Malaysia has some wonderful aspects!

incw...Kangirsuk is located close to Ungava Bay in Northern Quebec, Canada. Part of the Eastern Arctic region.

lynne...you have described it well. I often felt that I was in another dimension.

jo...wait until tomorrow! The best is yet to come!

a rambling rose...where are you off to?
